That was the main test, playing under this type of pressure for the first time since the 2013 EF. Good enough physically but didn't cope with it mentally when everything was on the line. That's why I want us involved in these games. When we are likely a better side next year I want to make sure we are mentally ready for big occasions when the time comes. It's learning. Half expected we'd $hit the bed. Big leap from the worst rabble ever to a finals contender in 12 months.

12 months? Been about 5 years!

Beaten by a better side.
Quite a few players down on the form of previous weeks.
Time to play the kids, do some experimentation....and maybe give a few a farewell game.

Just cant play 'the kids' Bolton did that and we couldnt beat a local U18 team when we go too young. Have to finish the year off with at least another 2 wins otherwise good luck trying to convince any one that can make a difference to play for us.

We will end up with more scraps again

12 months ago after being $hit for 5 years.

12 months ago we looked okay, on the rise. Sadly we haven't improved.

Need to clean out the dead wood. Marc Murphy has cost Paddy Dow a whole season of development.

Just over 12 months ago we were on the bottom after winning 4 from the last 43. Since then we've gone 12-12. But, of course we haven't improved...lol!!!!

Hardwick took 7 years to make Richmond the side they are now.

We haven't made finals for 7 years. Collingwood were missing a quarter of their best 22. Enough excuses.

Resting Cripps and Weitering next game might be a good idea. They both look like they need it.

I agree that we have problems in the midfield.  I have even more concerns with our forward line.  The way the game is coached today with forward lines packed, until we can get players who can dominate at full forward and/or centre half forward we are just dreaming of ever being more than a middle of the road side.

Our expectations of Martin have been too high. Believing he could be the key to the forward line's success was a mistake.  He reminds me of Brad Pearce in size and ability, and nobody expected him to carry the forward line load for the 1990s sides.

I'm over Harry. He has had enough time to put his stamp on the game.  He reminds me of Daniher in his attitude - turned on one minute then disappears the next.

Shocker! Showed yet again we are a long way off being top 8 side. Another game where we play 2-3 quarters and then stop completely. Lots of points..mostly bad:

1. Still no support for Cripps when he had a bad day. Walsh battled hard but he's only a 2nd year player. Curnow battles hard as always but we lack polish and finish in the midfield.
2. Has Docherty played a worse game for us? Fumbled, poor disposal, poor decision making at times......
3. Martin.....playing 20-30 minutes of footy in a game might work in a top side but not when you're one of the bottom 6 or 7 teams. Looks like he could be anything but then just completely stops...rarely sighted after half time. Like many, just doesn't look like he words hard enough.
4. Was anyone playing on Daicos after half time? Thrashed us and got countless uncontested posessions.
5. Dow showed once again he's not up to AFL level....even if it was his first game back. Doesn't get near the footy and when he does, looks like a deer in the headlights and just turns it over. Similarly Polson....got a few touches early but his original opponent was Thomas who dominated in the first quarter. If those two play again it demonstrates our lack of midfield class and depth.
6. Jones...superb again. Would've been a lot worse without him.
7. Hate to say it but the end is getting nearer for Simmo.....been one of the greatest ever Blues players but not sure we're in a position to have him go around again. Need some spark and Williams from GWS as a Free Agent would be handy.

Yes Simmo is done, the faster we play the worse it gets for him.

Jones was good again today, Weitering was also very good.

McKay was average and Levi hardly touched it.

Pittonet is NBG at pushing deep forward or deep defensive, he spends too much time spectating.

Just heard Collingwood hasn’t kept us to no goals in the second half of football for 111 years. At least we sit at 127 wins a piece against each other.

Interesting conundrum.....at what stage would you relieve Cripps of his duties and let him come home for personal reasons, if at all??  Once finals are a mathematical impossibility?? I think he’s physically, and most likely mentally spent, but I doubt he’d accept the offer.

Gosh I’m so disappointed. That second half was ugly.

We can play so well but then it turns to poop and I don’t understand why. Maybe Jack Martins terrible kick to Cripps was the beginning of the end.  Just such a dumb decision at such an important stage.

Kicking into our F50 just infuriates me. They continue to do the same thing, for the same result - easy mark by their defenders, Every time.

Pissed off at Cripps for missing that set shot too.

And Doch had a shocker for that first turnover in the first quarter.

I’m gutted, really thought we’d turned the corner and would win easily after that first half. I knew Collingwood wouldn’t stop tho, they are more experienced and hardened.
